During the days of Passover, it is customary to read a special portion from the Book of Exodus. In it, Moses yearns to behold God’s presence. God responds by telling Moses that while a direct encounter is not possible all humanity will be afforded the ability to experience the Divine Presence in an indirect way.
This Eternal Presence is revealed to us through the ever unfolding realm of creation. It is experienced through the love we share and feel on a daily basis. It is encountered in an afterglow, a passing shadow, a receding tide.
This invitation by the Torah this week is something to take to heart. During these days of Passover, each of us is invited to take a moment to see and experience the Godly around us. The world is filled with bountiful blessings, and this season encourages us to embrace them.
